GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo., Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Organizers of Colorado's First Annual Western Slope Cannabis Crown said the medical marijuana convention will include a competition to find the best weed.
Bobby Scurlock of Glenwood Springs, co-organizer of the convention with the owners of High Country Caregivers, said the April 17-18 conference in Aspen will award the "cannabis crown" to the grower whose strain is chosen as the top pot by Denver-based Full Spectrum Laboratories, which will analyze levels of active marijuana ingredient THC and how it matches with the needs of patients, the (Glenwood Springs) Post Independent reported Monday.
Scurlock said the convention is open to the public, but only Colorado registered medical marijuana patients will be allowed to purchase cannabis from vendors, and the sales must take place away from the convention hall.
"This is not about pot heads running around the streets," Scurlock said. "This conference is to enlighten people and talk about the benefits, and its economic impact."
